Dance Track Of The Week: The Juan MacLean - What Do You Feel Free About?

Every Saturday, dance/electronica expert and Frome FM DJ Jason B will be sharing his recommendations, picking an old track and a new track.

This week's recent selection is from The Juan MacLean, who returns with an electro-disco club cut.

The new single is sparse and anchored by a relentlessly catchy, bouncing bass line. Nancy Whang’s vocals carry a sense of urgency and directness as she advises to “keep your emotions secure / when you don’t, it gets personal.” Rave whistles, cowbell breakdowns and handclaps further ensure the track’s place as a key song for the summertime. 

Juan Maclean is a Brooklyn-based DJ and producer who has been a mainstay of the New York club scene, as well as maintaining a rigorous international touring schedule, since the release of his first records on DFA in 2002. He’s released an extensive catalogue of 12” singles and LPs for the label with vocalist Nancy Whang (most recently, 2014’s In A Dream LP, and last year’s 12” single ‘The Brighter The Light’). They are currently at work on their fourth album.

Jason B hosts Frome FM's Dance Classics every first Saturday of the month on Frome FM at 10pm. The show is repeated on the previous Thursday night at 10pm. Those of you lucky enough to live in Frome can pick it up on 96.6FM, otherwise listen online at www.frome.fm
